5 Reasons Gotham Needs to Be on Your Fall Must-See List

7 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Gotham is one of Fox's most buzzed-about new shows debuting this Fall, and for good reason. I saw the first episode of the Batman-inspired series, and there's a lot to love. The show revolves around James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) as a young detective working his way up the ranks in Gotham. We meet him right as he and his partner Harvey (Donal Logue) take on the murder of one Bruce Wayne's (David Mazouz) parents. The series premieres on Sept. 22, and if you like what you read below, you should definitely check out the trailer. It starts out with a bang . . . literally. Let's be clear about one thing: Gotham isn't the story of Batman. It's the story of James Gordon attempting to clean up the crime-ridden streets of Gotham before a superhero rises up to clear the scum away, and Gordon's story begins with the death of young Bruce's parents. I'm not giving much away here, »

6 Pics that Prove Nina Dobrev Had the Best Comic-Con Ever

11 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Nikki and Ian who?

Clearly, Nina Dobrev isn't letting reports that her ex-boyfriend Ian Somerhalder has moved on with her friend Nikki Reed get to her.

Nina, 25, attended Comic-Con this weekend to promote The Vampire Diaries, where according to multiple reports, the potential for things to get really awkward were high given that Ian and Nikki weren't shy on the Pda at the Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con after-party.

Nina and Nikki-- who even starred in a PSA for health insurance together in March -- reportedly used to go on double dates when she was still dating Ian, 35, and Nikki, 26, was still married to American Idol star Paul McDonald, though obviously, things have changed.

But if looking good is the best revenge, Nina clearly succeeded. She looked spectacular all weekend in a variety of amazing outfits.

She also chatted up the likes of Damon Wayans, Jr., [link »

New Gotham Trailer Packed With Easter Eggs

13 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox’s upcoming series Gotham, which charts the struggles of Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) to clean up the streets of Gotham City long before Batman ever arrived on the scene, fared very well at Comic-Con this year. The pilot episode was screened in Hall H on Saturday night to major applause from attendees – in particular, Sean Pertwee’s edgier Alfred Pennyworth was a hit, and audiences also loved Gordon’s action heroics.

Now, a new trailer for the series has arrived, including teases for Oswald Cobblepot’s (Robin Lord Taylor) transformation into the villainous Penguin and a better look at the fateful night in Crime Alley when young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) lost his parents to an armed mugger. There’s a lot of other exciting stuff on display in this trailer as well, including some cool lines from Gordon, glimpses of Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) and more of »

Villains Rise In the Dark New Trailer For 'Gotham' (Video)

13 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

While "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is set to unite the Dark Knight with the Man of Tomorrow in theaters around the world in 2016, Batman is also coming to television, much sooner, courtesy of Fox's "Gotham," airing this fall. It's a gritty look at the origins of Gotham's most notorious residents, both good and bad, with a young Commissioner Gordon (played by "Oc" star Ben McKenzie) taking center stage. If you aren't jazzed yet, this new trailer (courtesy of EW) should do the trick.

This trailer plays up the iconic nature of Gotham and its inhabitants without going crazy on the "Hey! It's a little kid version of the Riddler!" stuff that some of the previous trailer and teasers have relied heavily on. Instead, this takes a more atmospheric approach, establishing the mood and tone of the piece (gritty cop drama with some oversized villains) over the whole comic book connection thing. »

Comic-Con: Gotham Cast and Creator Talk about Gotham as Its Own Character, What to Expect from Their Characters, and the Importance of the Penguin

27 July 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Television shows based off comic book superheroes and franchises are nothing new.  With the recent booming successes of the Marvel and DC world, we now have shows like Arrow, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, and The Flash, all building on heroes and worlds we have already seen.  Fox’s new show Gotham, however, may be one of the most ambitious attempts yet, choosing to focus not on the central character of Batman, but to explore the origins of the city itself and the insane cast of characters it has created, both good and evil. At the center of the show is Ben McKenzie as a young Detective Jim Gordon, who comes onto the force to work with veteran Harvey Bullock, played by Donal Logue.  Main antagonists that emerge are Jada Pinkett Smith as an original character, Fish Mooney, and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepott, the man who becomes the Penguin. »

The villains come out to play in new 'Gotham' trailer

27 July 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

The latest trailer for Fox’s upcoming Gotham is essentially an introduction to the city’s villains before they were famous: Someone tells Oswald Cobblepot he walks like a penguin and Selina Kyle sneaks around all cat-like as a caption warns “villains will rise.” Gotham City sure sounds like a fun place to be!

Ben McKenzie of Southland and The O.C. fame plays James Gordon, a detective struggling to pin down who murdered the young Bruce Wayne’s parents as he encounters obstacles, like Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) and Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor), along the way.

Comic-Con 2014: 'Gotham' Pilot Review

27 July 2014 3:49 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Warner Bros. recent success on television began with Arrow and now they are expanding it with four new shows in the fall. None of them are more anticipated than Gotham. After having a chance to see the world premier of the pilot episode, it did not disappoint.

Set before Batman, Gotham starts with the deaths of Thomas and Martha Wayne on that fateful night we all know so well. Instead, of fast-forwarding to the beginning of Batman, Gotham looks at the city and the ripple effect that the Wayne deaths cause. Salina Kyle (Camren Bicondova) witnesses the crime while running away after stealing some milk. She becomes enamored with Bruce and follows him throughout the episode.

We meet Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) who is brand new to Gotham and paired up with Detective Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue). They meet young Bruce at the scene shortly after the crime.  Gordon bonds »
